Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul rallied a crowd of thousands at UC Davis Thursday evening in a "fight for liberty."
Liberty and less government intervention were key to Paul's 45-minute speech in the Quad.
"We need a revolution because we're not going in the right direction," said Paul, also a congressman from Texas.
In regards to government intervention, Paul mentioned this week's story in San Diego where a young man allegedly went without food or water for more than four days after the federal Drug Enforcement Administration arrested him.
"They have no authority to be law enforcement whatsoever," he said.
On the war on drugs, Paul said people should decide what is best for themselves. He said there is secrecy in government while individual privacy is violated.
